This is the story of 6 Tasmanian paddlers crossing Bass Strait in March 2011. Bass Strait has a reputation for a place not to be taken lightly and we intend to allow plenty of time to sit out bad weather and also to explore the islands we will be stopping at on the way across.
My new kayak that I will use for the Strait crossing is being prepared in Sydney by Expedition Kayaks. It is a Rockpool GT, a fine Welsh kayak built by master boat builder Mike Webb. As soon as i receive it I will fit a Flat Earth Sail to it supplied by Mick McRobb.
